WNBL1 recap: Week 6 (6/7 November 2021) - live streams, stats and more

Six weeks into the new WNBL season, there's been plenty to enjoy for fans across the country.

A one-point win for Worcester in East London was the most exciting game this weekend, whilst Ipswich, CoLA and Thames Valley also picked up victories.

Reading's game against Solent was a late scratch this weekend and will be rescheduled.

There's a full recap of the scores below, and each result is also clickable if you wish to view the live stats.

London Lions II (1-5) 56-57 Worcester Wolves (3-3)

Worcester moved back to .500 on the season with a narrow 57-56 victory over London Lions II.

The game looked to be heading the way of the Wolves early as the visitors built a double-digit advantage in the second quarter, but London fought back well to eventually hold the lead themselves as the teams went into the half-time break.

An even second half set up a tense finish, with the scores tied more than once in the game's final minutes.

The hosts will no doubt be left ruing what might have been, however. After Fatmata Janneh's lay-up tied the teams at 56-56 with 32 seconds remaining, the Wolves missed two shots and got the ball back on both occasions before Clementina Odom's blocking foul on Carolina Marques set up the contest's defining moment.

The Portuguese guard would miss the first free throw but held her nerve to hit the second, sending the Wolves back home with a big W.

Shanice Turner (12pts, 7reb) and Chandre Nunez (12pts, 5reb) led the way for the Wolves, as Marques' late heroics saw her finish on nine points.

Janneh clocked yet another double-double for the Lions, with 31 points and 10 boards, whilst Odom contributed 13 rebounds and seven blocks.

Elsewhere this weekend

Bristol Flyers (1-5) couldn't build on their first win of the season as they went down 66-57 at home to Thames Valley Cavaliers (3-2).

Katherine Goldsby (18pts, 8reb) and Ezekiela Lisk (13pts, 7reb) inflicted the bulk of the damage for the visitors, with Bristol enjoying a game-high 20 points from Mai Zilbeti.

CoLA Southwark Pride (6-0) once again flexed their defensive might to cruise past Nottingham Trent University (0-5) 65-28.

The hosts kept NTU to single digit scoring in all four quarters, including five in the second and six in the third, ensuring that the visitor's winless start to the season would continue another week.

Ipswich (4-1) moved into third place in the standings following a 100-44 win against Cardiff Met Archers II (2-3).

Leading 33-13 after the first and 58-21 by half-time, this one was over early thanks to an incredible 22-point, 22-rebound performance from Cameron Taylor-Willis, who also added eight assists, four steals and a pair of blocks across the full 40 minutes.

Ava Battese (17pts, 12 reb) and Olivia Forster (28pts, 6stl) also played well, as Cardiff were led by a 17-point, 10-rebound effort from Angelina Marazzi.
